Grassfed Burgers with Cheddar Cheese on a Paleo Bun

Well, based on comments here, I decided to give another try at baking. This time it was to try and make some hamburger buns.

I did about 2/3:1/3 of almond meal to coconut flour. Still too dense & heavy. But, still pleasing to eat with a nice thick, juicy grassfed gourmet burger.

Next time I’m going to use more coconut flour and I’m also going to try separating the eggs and beating the whites with some cream of tartar and folding the rest of the ingredients in.

    The bun looks nice and crunchy, is it crumbly?

      A bit crumbly, especially for such a monster burger. Still a work in progress.

    You are definitely speaking my language!

    Only a few more weeks until I’m done with my damn reduced calorie dieting!

    I find almond flour to be extreamely versitle, and use it for baked goods and breading. It makes an outstanding pie crust, and terrific pancakes!

    While high in 0-6, I just compensate with added CLO on those days that I indulge in nut products.

    For sweeteners, I use raw honey (I know,! I know!) for everthing except for beverages and whipped cream. For those two, I use stevia.

    I don’t think that honey is the boogie man that some in the Paleo community make it out to be. Sure, it is high in fructose, but using it wisely (and sparingly) should not be a problem. Always use it in conjunction with LOTS of saturated fat (a cheesecake for example). This helps to dilute the concentration of sugars hitting your bloodstream. Main-lining it by pouring it on pancakes and gobbing it into beverages is not at all wise.

    Here are two very intresting articles from Pub-Med regarding honey. Anybody currently condemming honey should check these out!

    Natural honey lowers plasma glucose, C-reactive protein, homocysteine, and blood lipids in healthy, diabetic, and hyperlipidemic subjects: comparison with dextrose and sucrose.
